rebirth

River, Marina Moevs, 2005
Inspired? Check out Magpie Tales

i ain’t going down
to the river to pray
gonna build me a fortress
gonna get the hell away
getting my ass off the grid
getting it good and hid
no i ain’t going down
to the river to pray


i ain’t going down
to wait for no king
it’s live free or die here
all or nothing
all i’m serving is fish
it ain’t on a silver dish
no i ain’t going down
to wait for no king


i ain’t going down
to the river to cry
left my lover in the city
didn’t even say goodbye
pulled the wool off my head
found i was almost dead
no i ain’t going down
to the river to cry

and i ain’t going back 
to the city to die

  1. Rivers are eccentric that way- they don't seem to mind if we arrive with nothing to say at all. No tears left to cry, empty hands and a list of what we will not, cannot do- the river takes it all. Washes it. Us.

Say something!
